This study employed Federal Polytechnic, Ilaro as a case study to evaluate the social factors that affected students' academic performance in a TVET institution. Since students' academic achievement is influenced by socioeconomic, psychological, and environmental factors, measuring academic performance of students is difficult. For this study, a survey design was used and organized around two hypotheses. 500 students, representing all levels, were picked as the respondents. Utilizing descriptive statistics, the data was studied. Cronbach's alpha for the survey research questionnaire was 0.712, which is greater than the required value of 70%, according to reliability statistics. This demonstrates the survey used for the study work's reliability. The results showed a significant link between extracurricular involvement and academic achievement.
